Episode 021: Over a span of just over 100 years, western Canada played host to the 3 largest landslides that have been measured in modern times. Frank Slide in 1903 was named for the Alberta town that saw a sixth of it's population buried under rock and debris from Turtle Mountain in the Crowsnest Pass between BC and Alberta, the Hope Slide just beyond Hope BC and finally, the Meager Slide, that occurred outside of Lillooet, BC. BONUS: Shitty seagulls.
